Two drivers both died Sunday afternoon in a head-on collision on Route 965.
State Police accident investigators say the crash occurred shortly after 1:30 PM on a curve near Center Church Road in Mineral Township in western Venango County.
The deceased drivers were identified as 75 year-old Wilfred Guth from Franklin, the operator of an eastbound car, and 66 year-old William Forrester from Mercer, who was driving a westbound minivan. Troopers did not specify the cause of the crash, except to say that the vehicles hit head-on.
Both vehicles appeared to be near-total losses. Police say the accident investigation is ongoing.
